We're engaged!!!!!!! Overjoyed & overwhelmed. I never saw it coming. If truth be told I think it's still sinking in...I am so so happy. 9 months ago, life changed forever when our lil maneen burst into our lives and hearts and I have spent very day since feeling like the luckiest woman on the plant. Getting engaged is the icing on the cake! I think I’m really hard to spring a surprise on too but Damien well and truly caught me. Himself & the sister had been in cahoots about the ring for some time apparently!! I could barely see it through the tears of joy (floods!!) when the box was produced though...I was completely blown away. The moment was pure magic... Simple, sincere and a major major surprise! And the ring itself is better than anything I might've imagined for myself. It was designed especially for me by Grá @gracediamonds_ire which in itself is incredibly special. I absolutely adore it! 💚
